Hostel World Ranks The Best Cities For Nightlife In the World

Hostel World compiled the best cities around the globe for partying! 

Most of us have been in this situation before. We're on vacation and while we didn't prepare for the occasion, we suddenly get the urge to go to out on the town.  All clubs have their different rules but the common thread with many of them is a strict dress code. Another could be the mandate to buy a bottle of champagne in order to get in. Regardless, there could be enough rules with a particular club to deter us from having a good night. 

  Sometimes, traveling on a budget and having fun out on the town just doesn't mix. Fortunately, popular hostel site Hostel World has compiled a list of the 10 best cities for nightlife around the world.  Here's the list.

  1. Hamburg, Germany
  2. Copenhagen, Denmark
  3. Berlin, Germany
  4. Dublin, Ireland
  5. Amsterdam, Netherlands
  6. San Francisco, USA
  7. Gothenberg, Sweden
  8. Prague, Czech Republic
  9. Warsaw, Poland
  10. New York, USA

Now you may be wondering, "What qualified these cities to be the best in the world?".  

According to Hostel World, "Our study took the local residents’ expertise to measure the quality of things to do, friendliness of locals, safety, ease of getting around, and cost, to discover which city can be crowned nightlife royalty!"  

I applaud Hostel World for putting together a well thought out list based on what the locals thought of their own scene.  So often we're given information on different scenes based on an outsiders perspective. In this case, we get a first hand opinion from the locals as to what makes their nightlife great.  For those of you that are interested in reading the piece at full length, the link will be provided below.

 What do you guys think? Do you agree with the rankings? If not, what cities should be on the list?
